Accessibility and Coronavirus

Please be aware that our Harrogate and Leeds office buildings are temporarily closed, in line with Government guidelines.

Berwins, however remains fully committed to supporting our clients with access to legal advice throughout the lockdown imposed because of the coronavirus pandemic. We are here for you. What this means is:

  • Our team will remain accessible and available to you remotely 
  • Appointments will no longer be held at our offices - this will now be by either a telephone call or we have a wide range of videoconferencing options which work really well.  A member of the team will be in touch to see what suits you best and make the necessary arrangements. 
  • Please avoid using post, DX or leaving documents at our office. Instead, please use email where possible.  If you have any difficulties on this please call us to discuss.
  • If you need to make a payment to us, please telephone a member of the team to obtain our bank details and the correct reference number to use.

We have worked in a paper-lite and tech-driven environment for some time now.  As a result, we were well placed to make the adaptations necessary to move to full remote working and therefore disruption to our legal support is minimised.

We understand you have new and pressing legal issues caused because of the Coronavirus and our lawyers are available and ready to help with these. 

Berwins continues to monitor the situation surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the UK and will make changes to the way we work in line with official recommendations.

Getting in touch

For direct contact, please use the direct dial for the person you wish to speak to, including mobile where available. These details can be found in email footers, on most correspondence or on our website at berwins.co.uk/people. Alternatively, our main telephone number 01423 509 000 remains monitored and answered (usually 8.30am – 5pm, although hours will vary).  

Individual emails are in full use so please use these where you know the name of the person or law@berwins.co.uk for general or new enquiries.  

For operational queries related to the Coronavirus, please contact Berwins' Operations Director, Caroline Davison via carolinedavison@berwins.co.uk.  

Most importantly, we hope that you and those you care for stay safe and well in the current times.  We’re all in this together and Berwins is here for you.
